EBAY SUCKS!!!!!!!!


The past couple years I do this over and over again. I swear them off because they pull innocent auctions due to changes in their regulations.

Well get this I have a few auctions up out the storage of things we don't need, make a little extra cash with the upcoming Bridal Affaire I could use it. Well 2 of the auctions were for homeschool materials and because they mention there is a teachers manual in them they were pulled! Ok that alone ticks me off, BUT what really pisses me off is they have been up for a week, ending time was 2 hours away and they pulled them after there were several bids and watchers and nearly ending time. I have relisted taking out the words "Teachers Manual" stupid stupid stupid. I have listed auctions like this many many recently as earlier this year.

Selling on ebay allows me to clean my house and basically have an online garage sale in the middle of winter when normal people in Montana wouldn't go garage saling. AND I get to make a little extra cash. Sadly the rules they have for ebay pertain to the stupid laws of California.

The item(s) was removed because it violated the eBay Teacher's Edition policy. We notified members who placed bids on the item that the listing has been canceled.

The sale of Teacher's Editions of textbooks and solutions manuals that are intended solely for use by teachers are not permitted on eBay. Because eBay is unable to verify whether someone is authorized to buy a Teacher's Edition, we are unable to accept listings for these items.

Teacher's Edition textbooks contain answer keys, exams, teaching tips, and guides for instructors, and are often clearly labeled as such. However, if you have any doubt, don't list the item on eBay.

We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage you to direct any questions or concerns to the item's publisher.

On an ending note I relisted my listings I simply took out the words Teachers Manual...means I may lose potential income but I guess that is just how things go. I really do hate ebay and thanks to this BS I will go back to what I started doing this past year and sell to the local pawn shop in Bozeman. There were some things I knew I could get a better deal selling myself on ebay so kept them to do as such and of course deal with this crap again for what I felt were completely innocent auctions!!
